Red Tree

Red Tree

Back in the edited-watercolor-and-painterly mode of last month. I can’t say whether post-capture editing in this case creates a “new” image or an improved image or just a different image. The original tree was just as striking as this image suggests. But I do like the effect that editing produces here, particularly since it hasn’t rendered the image “unnatural.” This tree – pictured here in fall colors – is lakeside in Bruce Park in Greenwich.

Larch Tree in Winter

Larch Bough

This is a Larch bough. The larch tree is distinctive in that it’s a needle-bearing coniferous tree that is also deciduous, i.e. it drops its needles in winter. The image reminds me of some works by the American painter, Andrew Wyeth, whose work I’ve always liked. I can’t say I had this in mind when I shot the image, but as it emerged in post I found myself thinking of Wyeth and wanting to achieve this particular look.
